Rogue Warrior Getting Less Than Stellar Reviews

1 min read


Bethesda’s kept marketing and promotion of their new semi-autobiographical tactical First-Person Shooter, Rogue Warrior pretty low key, despite having  Mickey Rourke voice the game’s protagonist, Real-life Navy Seal Richard Marcinko.

Now that the game’s out and reviews are trickling in its easy to see why; The game is apparently rather rubbish. Gamepro have given it a rather low 1.5/5, with Gamespot scoring it even lower, saying “This dreadfully boring, expletive-filled, extremely short shooter is an absolute rip-off,” and giving it an abysmal 2/10. This is quite a blow to those of you who are perhaps fans of “Demo Dick” Marcinko and his exploits as a genuine bad-ass.

With its current Metacritic rating of 42, it’s fairly safe to say that this game’s a citrus fruit of some sort.

Anyway, the game’s out now. For you to buy. Although you may not want to.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
